It’s been a while since my last post here so I thought to jot down a few things on my mind. It seems I’m at another cross-road in my life that requires a bit of guidance from the all-wise one (if there’s such a being) . Until I’m able to figure out who or what this wise entity is, I turn to my saviors at the moment ….quotes and words of wisdom from the entire world, courtesy of the world-wide web. Below is a collection of some quotes and sayings that I found to be useful in uplifting my spirits when I was down. Some helped shed the light on perhaps a complex situation while others served as reminder on a simpler scale of the humanity factor within all of us. I’ll add to this post as I come across more quotes, with the most recent towards the top.

“We can never judge the lives of others, because each person knows only their own pain and renunciation. It’s one thing to feel that you are on the right path, but it’s another to think that yours is the only path.”

The words that enlighten the soul are more precious than jewels ~ Hazrat Inayat Khan

I don’t want to get 2 the end of my life & find I lived just the length of it. I want 2 have lived the width of it as well. -Diane Ackerman

“Individually, we are one drop. Together, we are an ocean.” – Ryunosuke Satoro

A friendly look, a kindly smile, one good act, & life’s worthwhile. -Unknown

I know God will not give me anything I can’t handle. I just wish that He didn’t trust me so much. ~Mother Teresa


The divine art of letting go July 22, 2010



It’s strange how certain people come into your life in so many different ways and make an impact without meaning to , intending to or realizing they have.   One such person in my life is of all people a columnist from The Nashville Examiner , also knows on twitter as @TheSingleWoman.  She has so far published two articles that have been my salvation at the exact moment that I needed.  

This article I”m sharing today is one such gem the universe brought to my platter as I struggle once again with a tough time in my life.  As much as I try to be the pillar for my family and friends, there are times that the pillar too feels like the weight of the world is getting ready to crush and crumble the steadiness of what the world sees as a strong sturdy structure.  Today’s article is acting as the strong fast cement needed to patch and strengthen the crumbling pieces.

The divine art of letting go.

It always amazes me in what shape, form , way your guardian angels manifest and reveal themselves to you. There’s never been a moment in my life when walking down a dark path, a beacon of light isn’t glowing at some point , beckoning me towards it’s path, pulling me away from the darkness. That beacon is my guardian angel! They’re always out there; in the forms of family, friends, signs, a song or sometimes even a stranger. It’s up to you to be able to see within the darkness that surrounds you and recognize such an angel. Today, my friend reminded me of something I’ve always known: “our lives aren’t 100% where we would like them to be, but I am a firm believer that our lives are only 10% what happens to us and 90% how we respond to it” He also said “The world may only see you as one person, but to that one person you may be the world. Go out and find that person, make them smile. You’ll find it is impossible not to want to smile yourself.” Thank you my friend…for I smiled because of you today 🙂
